Description

Mashed Potato Truffles. Not a typo. Definitely delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Dark Chocolate Chips
  • ½ cups Cold Leftover Mashed Potatoes (see Note)
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • ½ cups Toppings For Rolling: Cocoa Powder, Powdered Sugar, Chopped Pecans, Or Coconut Flakes

Preparation

In a small bowl, add the chocolate chips. Melt them in the microwave at 50% power, or in the top of a double boiler. Melt the chocolate slowly and stir often. If doing it in the microwave, heat for 30 seconds at a time, stirring before each increment. When the chocolate has melted entirely, stir in the mashed potatoes. Add the vanilla. Stir, stir, stir. And stir til you can stir no more.

Place the mixture in the fridge to firm up for 30 minutes.

Pour your rolling mixture(s) in little bowls and have them ready. Take 1 tablespoon-sized hunks of the cold dough and roll between the palms of your hands. Roll in desired topping, then place on a baking sheet and refrigerate until firm.

They will keep in the fridge for 1 week.

Notes: Make sure you don’t use leftover mashed potatoes that contain garlic, herbs, sour cream or excessive pepper or spices. I didn’t try this recipe with instant potatoes. I used Russet potatoes that I peeled, boiled, and mashed with a splash of cream, milk, butter and salt.
